Here's a nice short video clip of the car in action.
This looks like a great car. I would buy one. Too bad we will not get it over here. But hey, we all want to drive the VW/ [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG] Chrysler mini van, right? What sort of butt heads are running VW?
well if they bring over a limited number and they sell well (like the 04 R32) then they will hold their value
at this rate I may be driving my '04 R32 for the rest of my life, sorry VW, but you haven't given me an excuse to trade up yet.... [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emgift.gif[/IMG]

Here is the current style.....
Notice...Im just posting the pic he asked for...Im not saying the rocco looks like an civc or anything.(Thats what the mk5 golf was for)

And as stated earlier.... This Scirocco or the Focus RS would be pushing $40-50k

wow interesting, dual exhaust or not? Cool wheels, what model is it?
VWoA back in 2002 this forum pushed hard for the Euro 25th GTI and you gave us the 337, 1500 copies that had a internet presale and nearly half of the sold online the rest sold at sticker the second they hit the dealers books. The car went over so well that the next year you gave us the 20th which also sold well and has one of the best resale values of any VW. So why can't we go that route again, make it a very limited edition high priced decked out version of the car. Put it in all the US auto shows, and generate some excitement for the VW brand. Everyone will want to come see it, the die hards will buy it, and everyone else will be in your showrooms so you can show them how great and inexpensive most of the rest of your line up is. Generate some buzz, please your fans, sell some other models.

The process of bringing us the 337 required no federalization costs; chassis/engine/trans combo already existed here.
The Scirocco is an entirely new chassis and requires extensive testing before making it to US showrooms. So just getting the car to market already puts it in a big hole, financially speaking, and low sales volume predictions make it a losing proposition as far as VW is concerned.
Finally, it's VW's position that a relatively large percentage of US Scirocco sales would equate to a relatively large percentage of fewer GTI sales.
This car should of been put out instead of the GTI by far the hottest new addition to the VW lineup.. Now please bring it to the states so i can sell all my cars and just have one sweet Scirocco!!! I also back the statement that they should at least put out a RWD model i mean seriously just 1 that isn't air cooled pleaseee
"Built.. Not Bought"
WHY WHY WHY do they bring cars here just to photograph them in places they will never be sold???????????????? At least they got the weather right in this one...
oh and found this Rieger body kit as well hmmmmm arrrrgggghhhhhh! BRING THIS CAR HERE!!!! SO BRING OVER LESS GTI's!

Regardless,... this car should have been a fastback - like the original Scirocco and Corrado. As a hatchback, it just looks like a shorter Golf.
